ASTM F86 Cleaning and Passivation
ASTM F86 Cleaning and Passivation is a the most advanced standard for cleaning particles and process residues from the tantalum surface. As ASTM F86 is a cost efficient cleaning method it is specified by 90 percent of X-medics’ customers. Unless other specified our tantalum pins has been ASTM F86 cleaned
